Today, Rav Avrohom Chaim Levin, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Telshe in Chicago, was asked by a talmid who one should vote for in today’s US presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The rosh yeshiva smiled and said, “I voted for Mr. Trump and you should also.”
Rav Levin is a senior member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Agudas Yisroel of America and the chairman of Vaad Roshei Hayeshivos of Torah Umesorah.
One of the most prominent talmidim of Rav Elya Meir Bloch zt”l and Rav Mottel Katz zt”l, roshei yeshiva of Yeshivas Telshe in Cleveland, Rav Levin is the only son of Rav Leizer Levin zt”l, longtime rov of Detroit and talmidof the Chofetz Chaim. Rav Levin’s wife, Rebbetzin Esther Levintichyeh, is a daughter of Rav Efraim Mordechai Ginsburg zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Mirrer Yeshiva, and granddaughter of Rav Chatzkel Levenstein zt”l, famed mashgiach of Mir and Ponovezh.
Rav Levin currently leads the Telshe Yeshiva in Chicago together with his brother-in-law, Rav Chaim Dov Keller.
